Have you ever had the following experience: there is a person walking slowly in front of you while chatting on the phone, typing text messages, talking with friends or doing whatever at the same time? The most important thing is that they are walking slowly and blocking your path, especially when you are in a hurry.
How did you usually deal with those slow walkers? Were you patient and slowed down until either you or they changed direction or reach a crossroad? Say “excuse me” to ask them to let you pass? Walk like a snake or crab to try to find a small channel that you could pass by? Or walk into the stores on the street to get away from the situation? In Japan, someone invented a smart and easy tool that quickly gets the slow walker in front of you out of you way. It might not be a radical invention that you have never seen. However, just think a little bit differently so that you could give an old thing a brand new meaning.
I am sharing this video on youtube with you, hope you enjoy it. Maybe you could try it next time when you run into some slow walkers.
